Extractions: Phone: 836-2321/836-3244 SCHEDULE FALL 2003 READINGS EXERCISES OFFICE HOURS ONLINE RESOURCES This course introduces students to the geography of the Middle East (and North Africa). Specifically, students will learn how the geographic perspective helps us in understanding the diverse physical and human landscapes of the region stretching from Morocco through Iran, Turkey through Yemen. The geographical perspective explores environments, the arrangement of material (including symbolic) culture on the landscape, the emergence of regions and the interconnections between them, it tries to understand the relationships between people and their environments, and how those relationships change and affect a region over time. Specific emphasis will be placed on recognizing and responding to generalizations and stereotypes of the Middle East that are prevalent in the United States, misunderstandings that confound respectful and constructive interactions between the two regions. It has recently been asserted that, despite the "tremendous resources for enhancing our geographic awareness and global understanding, most Americans living in a Global Age continues to possess little more than a Stone Age awareness of the world around them (Charles Gritzner, Journal of Geography, 102:90-91, 2003)." This course is designed to excite students' geographic awareness and to encourage them to understand the importance of geography through learning about the peoples and places of the Middle East and North Africa.

Extractions: OAS_AD('Top'); HOME FEATURES HERITAGE HISTORY ... PRUSSIA/GALICIA/SILESIA Poland? HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHY OF POLAND..... In researching Polish ancestors it is important to understand what the boundaries of Poland were at a given period in time. Poland's geography has been redefined many times. Unless you understand these basic changes, it can be confusing to understand why your why your Polish ancestors who immigrated to another country would declare their country as; Germany, Prussia, East Prussia, Russia, Austria or Hungary. Your ancestors answer were politically correct, but it did not necessarily reveal their ethnic origin. They were of Polish descent, but they were caught up in the boundary changes associated with Poland's political history. They lived in an area that was not longer under Poland's control. In certain periods of history, Poland didn't even exist as a country. Brief History of Poland and It's Geography You may be familiar with the current map of Poland (above). It is useful reference if you are trying to determine an area were someone is living in Poland today. However, it may not be a good reference for locating where your ancestors may have come from in Poland. This section will help to understand why. TABLE 1: Comparison 1660-1870
Extractions: Assyria first rose to prominence in the second millennium BC (roughly the period of the patriarchal stories of Gen 12ff.). However it was during the period of the Israelite kingdoms that Assyria moved out of its heartland around the Upper Tigris river (Nineveh and Assur) to control the Mesopotamian region from the mid ninth century until late in the seventh century BC. The Aramean kingdoms (especially Arpad, Hamath and Damascus ) in the West were major rivals and obstacles to Assyrian expansion. From the death of Shalmaneser III (in 824BC) till the reign of Tiglath-pileser III (from 744BC) internal rebellion and the strength of Uratu in the North reduced Assyria's threat to the West. During this period Israel and Judah were both small kingdoms giving support either to the Assyrians or the Arameans (Syrians) and prospering or suffering according to the relative strength of these more major powers. Israel in particular often used Assyrian power to retain independence from Damascus Following the accession of Tiglath-pileser III (744BC) a series of powerful kings gained control and thus ended Aramean threats to Mesopotamian stability. This control of a large part of the region created the first "real" empire. Prisoners and loot from these campaigns were used in extensive building projects "at home".
